With more new faction being released, older faction hull such as vsec cant compete with the newer one here. But the build time on new released ships are faster than the old one. For example a dread needs 8 days build time just for an empty hull, but empty trojan can be done with only 2 days.
So here i suggest that you reduce the old tech build and refit time to a minimum since they cant do anything much now and i hope its not only for ships and weapons build but for the research and crafting too, also for managing base modules so the new player wont have to wait for so long just for an outdated tech. Thank you, i hope you will consider this for the better of the players experience in the game
